Aquarimax Episode 184

Join Aquarimax hosts Rus and Kelly as they discuss comments nd questions from David in Colorado, “Cyber” David K., Dr. Bob on the North Shoe of Boston, Anthony in Oregon, and Tony in New York.

Here’s the link from David K. about veterinarian’s gloves that can work well as aquarium gloves:

Message: I just found out about your podcast and I am starting to catch up on old episodes.  I recently listened to your interview with Diana Walstad and when you guys were talking about aquarium gloves I thought about these.


These are used by large animal vets when checking cows for pregnancy.  They are thin, disposable, cheap and they go all the way up to your shoulder.


Here are some links on sexing Jewel cichlids. Use at your own risk, of course.
